STATE FORECAST: Current Situation:
A surface trough will remain slow-moving near the southwest and southern border
of Queensland through today and Tuesday. Hot northerly winds will continue be
drawn across much of the state ahead of the trough. A high pressure system over
the southern Coral Sea will move slowly to the southeast over the next few
days, maintaining a weak ridge along the central and northern east coast. An
upper trough will move across the south of the state on Wednesday with a
cloud-band and areas of rain moving east across the southern interior,
weakening as it approaches the southeast on Thursday. The associated surface
trough and cool southerly change will move north and east across western and
southern Queensland on Wednesday and spread through much of the remainder of
the state on Thursday. Temperatures will remain well above average over central
and southern parts of the state on Monday and Tuesday. Much cooler temperatures
will then spread to the southwest of the state on Wednesday and to most
remaining areas on Thursday.
Outlook for Tuesday: Increasing cloud and the slight to medium chance of showers and possible thunderstorms through the southwest. The slight chance of an afternoon shower or thunderstorm close to the New South Wales border in the southeast of the state. Fine and mostly sunny elsewhere. Hot conditions over the central, southern and southeast parts of the state. Moderate to fresh northeast to northwesterly winds, tending moderate southeasterly over the norther tropics.
Outlook for Wednesday: An upper trough is expected to move eastwards across southwestern Queensland, leading to a band of cloud, rain areas and possible thunderstorms moving eastwards through the southwest and southern interior. Some moderate to locally heavy falls are possible over parts of the southern interior. The slight to medium chance of showers and thunderstorms about the central and northern interior as the surface trough moves north and east across the state. Fine and mostly sunny in eastern districts. Temperatures will remain well above average in eastern districts ahead of the surface trough but will cool significantly in the southwest in the wake of the trough.
Outlook for Thursday: The upper trough is expected to move eastwards across southeast Queensland whilst weakening, while the associated surface trough will move further north and east to reach most of the state apart from the northern tropics. The band of cloud, patchy rain and possible thunderstorms should move across the southeast of the state early, and is expected to mostly contract off the southeast coast during the morning. The trough will linger over the central and northern interior leading to slight to medium chance of showers and possible thunderstorms. A fresh to strong southerly wind change will reach the far southeast in the afternoon or evening. Temperatures will be much cooler for most of the state as cooler southerly winds develop following the passage of the trough.
Outlook for Friday: The ridge will continue to develop along southern parts of the east coast as the high moves eastwards across South Australia, while the coastal trough is likely to move slowly north to the central coast. Lingering instability will support a moderate chance of showers and a few thunderstorms near and to the north of the surface trough over the southeastern tropics, with a slight to moderate chance of showers along the east coast to the south of the trough. Temperatures will be near or below average throughout the state.
Outlook for Saturday until Monday: A series of upper troughs are likely to move across the state through the outlook period. These are likely to produce some showers and possible thunderstorms over the central and northern interior with showers about parts of the east coast. These showers are likely to be locally enhanced near a coastal trough which is likely to move slowly northwards from the central coast to the north tropical coast during the period. Temperatures will be near or below average throughout the state.

The latest from BoM for the coming week ahead folks. Please be very aware
of the increased fire danger this week, we really don't want to be flying over
your home trying to protect it with the water bombers or on the ground in our
appliances doing the same if we can help it, please stay safe and be aware of
